Daily Log

June 14, 1999


Began the day by taking depths within each meter in order to better see the progression of the trench. began excavation in meters E188/S49-50 and made a 5 cm cut across. Immediately began to yield large pieces of tile, some pottery including a pithos rim, and small bits of bone. Consistently finding large amounts of plaster in varying states of decay. Designated a small area within meters E188/S50 approx 65cm x 55cm as locus 15. Locus 15 is characterized by a gray galestra-like soil with lots of carbon and shale-like rock. Within this locus the amounts of pottery and tile have not been as great as locus 14 but have discovered large quantities of reed impressed plaster (find #6).


  • Find #5
  • E188.80/S49.75
  • 135 cm bd
  • Locus 15
  • Reed impressed plaster


Continuing to find carbon, charcoal and plaster, withing the area. An unusual piece of terracotta was excavated and thought to be a possible fragment of a raking sime (Find #7). Continued another half meter into meters E187/S49-50 without any significant finds. Tile yielded today was about 1 full cassette, approx. 50 pieceds of plaster of varying sizes and 2 1/4 latte boxes of pottery and bone.
